  • Bedrooms: 2
Positioned to enjoy an elevated aspect over gardens towards distant countryside to both front and rear, this next-to-end terraced, three-storey, two double bedroomed property has the benefit of a two-storey substantial stone extension to the rear and should be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.

This short terraced row of only ten cottages is fondly termed by the locals as "Thirteen Chimneys", with this property having the benefit of having both a front and back door (unlike many of the others in the row).

Having undergone a substantial programme of modernisation over the years, the property now features an open-plan ground floor living room and kitchen with a solid oak floor, solid beech worktops, pinewood staircase, and painted ceiling beams. There is a homely cast iron log-burning stove and a stylish fitted kitchen with an integrated fridge and dishwasher.

At first floor level there is a double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and a shower room/WC. On the second floor there is a further double bedroom and bathroom/WC. The property is further warmed with gas-fired central heating from a combination boiler and almost all windows have recently been replaced with sealed unit double glazing in keeping with the property's original style.

Externally, the property has an enclosed, easterly facing rear garden, beyond which there are four separate out houses; two of which are stores and one being a fully-equipped laundry room and another being a separate studio.

The property is therefore perfect as a main home or ideal as a supplementary home or for those looking to purchase a property for holiday cottage purposes.

Blockley village is located mid-way between the Cotswold cafe society of Chipping Campden and the more traditional market town of Moreton-in-Marsh, where there are rail links to London Paddington. The village has its own primary school, hotel, village shop and cafe, and there is always a warm welcome to be enjoyed at the Great Western Arms. There are particularly scenic walks in the surrounding countryside, which is a valley bisected by Blockley Brook, and a dog-walker's paradise.
